At the heart of Timber Hills is the extraordinary bond that exists between twins and their unique way of handling the handicaps and heartaches their family must endure.From the Inside Flap:
A small part of his consciousness told him he was alone at the sawmill, that the sun had slid behind the hills. In a far corner of Gus's mind he remembered men picking up their lunch pails and going home for the night. It took the swooping motion and harsh scream of the hawk to make him glance up. Gus blinked several times to force himself back to the present, peering toward the chicken coop then back up at the prowling hawk. He realized that most of the hens had gone to roost, then briefly wondered if Sara Jane had gathered the eggs. Gus sighed. Of course she had. It was his sister's favorite chore. He pictured her with her little blue apron, a basket swinging at her side and long, silky banana curls swaying back and forth across her back. His gaze wandered slowly toward the hills where smoky twilight was masking the mulitcolored trees. He hadn't noticed autumn's chill in the air until now, and when he shivered he felt goose bumps rise on his forearms. Gus had hoped the anniversary of this infamous day would be easier on him than it had been a year ago, but nothing had changed. The sadness was still there. Gil's absence was always with him.
